The land has not yet closed. It's due to close on May 31. And yet we are excited to start planning workshops as we build. To that end, we have some questions about interest levels.

earth works - construct a pond(s), restore a creek, create berms, build hugelkultur.

May or may not overlap or coincide with wofati workshop to maximize track hoe use.

IF you would be able to:
  • travel to the site in Montana
  • have the funds to pay a workshop fee
  • be able to take time off work

  • we want to hear from you in this thread.

    So, IF you fit the three criteria above, please reply and include:
    (a) how many podcasts you've listened to
    (b) whether you would be willing to camp in a tent
    (c) how many days works for you - 2-3 day, 5-7 days
    (d) which earth works are most interesting: pond, creek restoration, berms, hugelkultur.

    Workshop space will be limited, so those responding here will be given priority registration once we actually close and have more details nailed down.

    Yes I am interested.
    I have listened to 50% of podcasts.
    I can take leave from work. Best time for me is late summer or early fall before flu season, I am a registered nurse.
    I can travel to Montana--would love it--and get out of Las Vegas at the same time.
    I would like a longer teaching time- 5 days.
    I can sleep in a tent--or will sleep in the back of my truck. I snore terribly so it wouldn't be fair to make anyone try to share with me.
    I have enough money to pay for anything I really want.
    I am interested in ponds and berms. And anything for arid high desert. I have a small holding in Albuquerque

    I have listened about a 1/4 of the podcasts. I am new to the podcasts but am cruising through them.

    Totally willing to tent it

    All are interesting and I would love to join for all. My wife and I are searching for 100-200 acres in Washington state so we can holzerfy it.

    Lastly I want to comment on the price. Idk what you guys are thinking but depends on the price for us because I would have to take a week off of work which adds a lot of money to the cost.

    Keep us posted and keep infecting brains!

    Mea culpa - I guess I didn't quite answer all the ?'s. Thanks Jason, reading your answer prompted me!

    (d) which earthworks - (1) hugelkultur, (2) pond, (3) berms - pretty much equally. No creeks out here to restore.
